Breathe in for a count of three. to one and out for a count of 4321. Breathe in for a count of three to one and out for a count of 4321. Feel this feeling of relaxation. Notice this feeling of relaxation spread throughout your entire body. Notice as your face and jaw relaxes and this feeling spreads down your neck and shoulders. Feel the upper back release of any tension and the muscles on either side of the spine relax. Allow your belly to soften as the lower back and hips become heavy.

Your entire body feels deeply relaxed now. Feel this heavy lethargy throughout the entire body. Notice that your mind is quiet and still as your body lays completely at peace. Keep your breathing slow and steady. Breathing in for three, two, one and out 432 and one we’re going to begin allowing some conscious thoughts to flow through the mind. Try not to get caught up in them. Simply allow one to float into your awareness and simply be conscious of it. These thoughts returned so slowly that you have time to re examine them to notice where they come from, and to feel the effect that they have on your body.
I want you to allow only thoughts about your pregnancy your baby, birth or motherhood, enter. When is the first thing that comes to mind in this space for you. Allow your focus mind to examine what fears you have around birth or pregnancy or motherhood. If nothing comes up, that’s perfectly fine. Just sit in the space with awareness. Some of us will have many fears that arise, others will at certain times. So if nothing comes up for you today, simply continue breathing deeply rather than getting caught up in the conscious thinking mind.

Is it heavy or light? tight or difficult to catch? How does this feel make your body feel? Wherever you’re feeling this fear, thought or emotion. I want you to draw it into your heart space. Feel it deeply in your heart and acknowledge that this Fear is as real as any other. Thank it for showing up to teach you how important this transformation that you’re currently going through will be. And then give it your blessing to leave as you no longer need to hold on to this fear. Breathe in deeply for three, two, one and extend the exhale for as long as you can. Imagining the feeling of this fear in your heart space, leaving with the breath.
Continue breathing deeply until you feel that this severe has left the body. Let’s work through a couple more together, then I will give you time to practice releasing fears on your own.

Let another fear or thought enter into your focused awareness. You may even find that the same fear or variations of the same fear keep popping back up. Keep working to release whatever shows up without worrying about trying to think too hard about the fears that you are working on. Notice the fear internally name it. Where has it come from.

Take some time now to either work through remaining fears in the same way. or sit in this space of awareness feeling light and completely without tension or fear.
Notice how the body feels so much lighter now. Feel your energy moving more freely. Now that all tension from the fear you’ve been carrying is completely gone from the body. Enjoy the feeling of calm that remains. Allow this feeling of lightness to spread to all parts of you and slowly start to deepen your breathing. Feeling the energy returning.
Take your time returning your awareness back to the space that you currently sit or lie. Slowly bringing yourself back as we complete our meditation together today.
